Possible Niches for Langmuir Blodgett Films

  • G. G. Roberts
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 248)


During the past decade many papers have been published in the field of Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films(1). Considerable progress has been made in improving the deposition system (Langmuir-trough) and associated equipment for monitoring the quality of a floating monolayer. There has also been much innovation in the design of suitable molecules. Consequently, there is now a reasonable body of information for a range of different materials deposited in LB film form. Moreover, virtually every relevant analytical technique has now been used to show that well-engineered molecules can form high-quality ordered films on a variety of substrates.
